Can I use alpex multilayer composite pipe systems in stables?

The alpex multilayer composite pipe system is limitedly resistant to ammonia content in the atmosphere that often occurs in stables. Corresponding alpex fittings and connectors, however, are exposed to a high risk of corrosion under these conditions. The installation should therefore be of concealed type. If it is not possible, fittings and connectors must be protected by means of appropriate measures such as wrapping in a corrosion protection tape (e.g. DENSO tape, KEBU tape) or a vapour-tight insulation (e.g. Armaflex). We recommend that the alpex system should be protected with a vapour-tight insulation.
